Saturn Returns

Saturn Returns is a choreopoem by Sonny Nwachukwu exploring the psychospiritual clashes produced in Black people by the weight of history.

Written and directed by Sonny Nwachukwu, Saturn Returns delves into an astral projection reality where the characters of Ada and Obi take on forms of past, present and future lives.

Saturn Returns wraps modern psychological issues of being trapped in repeating self-destructive patterns within the spiritually affirming circularity of rebirth along family lineage that is a feature of Igbo mythology.

Through music, spoken word and dance, Saturn Returns contrasts Christian notions of redemption through suffering, with mystical notions of escaping the mortal realm through astral projection.
